I got this email alert today. Since I’m not a subscriber, my access is limited, but here’s the tease:
Paul Ryan Is Said to be Planning an Active Role: Representative Paul D. Ryan expects to play a leading role in a Romney administration’s drive to enact a budget-shrinking government and overhauling programs like Medicare.
Two things: One is the obvious concern over their agenda. They want to turn Medicare into a voucher system that will cost more out of pocket, and they’d love to cut things like, oh, let’s see… FEMA. And that’s just for starters.
But the other thing is this: Romney-Ryan’s shunning the press. Both of these cowards are refusing to answer questions, neither will be interviewed and haven’t been for weeks. So what we got (or didn’t get) during their campaign was a conspicuous lack of details about their policies and plans, a press blackout, and a whole lot of lies.
Yet if– and that’s a big if– they win on Tuesday, Paul Ryan would suddenly become very visible and is already previewing the horror story that will become the United States of America should they gain the powers they crave so much. He aspires to be the next Dick Cheney, and we all know how that turned out.
